Abstract

In this work, the AA. apply the techniques developed for determining basin-wide sediment generation rates in small basins to both the entire Yuma Wash drainage and to smaller sub-basins of the Wash. Tracing nuclide concentrations in sediment along the length of Yuma Wash, the AA. identify significant sediment source areas. Nuclide concentrations in upland basins represent the production rate of sediment from the weathering of bedrock (sediment generation). Nuclide concentrations in main stem samples reflect both upland sediment generation and the long-term effects of sediment storage and reworking
